"The Dynam Waco YMF-5 is a classic open cockpit biplane. It has excellent handling capabilities on both low and high speed. The stock power system provides plenty of power to do aerobatics such as vertical climbs, turning somersaults, flying upside down and so on." (from Dynam site)

This biplane is a 50 inch wingspan, 4 cell, semi-scale version of the 1986 design roughly based on the YMF, built by WACO Classic Aircraft. While not a 3-D aircraft by any means, will do all the barnstorming tricks that the original would. It features a dual cockpit and a scale decal set. Include your own 6 channel receiver and you'll be ready to go in no time.

View of the Field at LARKS West
"The Waco 'F' series of biplanes supplanted and then replaced the earlier 'O' series of 1927/33. The 'F' series had an airframe which was smaller and about 450 pounds (200 kg) lighter than the 'O' series, while continuing to provide accommodation for three persons in tandem open cockpits. A similar performance to the earlier model was obtained on the power of smaller and more economical engines.[1]

1986 design roughly based on the YMF, built by WACO Classic Aircraft"

"The week of January 13, the Government Affairs team traveled to Washington, DC to address AMA’s concerns with the proposed Remote ID rule. AMA met with multiple congressional offices to discuss the impact the proposed rule would have on all aspects of the hobby. We were able to share our community’s concerns regarding the NPRM and gained support from many on Capitol Hill."

Doyle sent me to the Grayson Hobby store near Atlanta. They have a small store front but a busy mail order section. If you are looking for racing drones or any of the available Dynam planes, like the Waco (available in red or yellow), this month's Plane of the Month for January. This is the place to go. Talk to Will. Very helpful.
